Who will play Bilbo!?!?!? Can't Post

Hey, I've been coming to this site for a long time I've only just decided to sign up and post. So hello everyone!

I am sorry if this has been brought up of late as I assume a lot of people wonder but next time Guillermo del Toro is about I'd love to know his thoughts on Bilbo and how will play him. I think Ian Holm was perfect to Bilbo in lord of the rings as his role was not as intense as it will be in the hobbit. Whether he can do a acting younger version of himself as well who knows. I hope in many ways they have Ian Holm do it but I would understand if they didn't use him. As long as they find someone that looks similar and has a lot of the same characteristics. Obviously the two biggest questions could be regarding these two films is in the hobbit who will be Bilbo and in the 2nd what will the story, personally I love that it will happen as I love middle earth and I'd watch Gandalf eat and apple for 2 hours talking to a dwarve about horses but I'm so curious as everyone is about will it have an ending like the hobbit does & lord of the rings does. Will they make up a story or will it be loosely based some small note that Tolkien made about something happening around middle earth. At first I thought when i heard there was going to be to films the hobbit was going to be split. I thought the 1st thing would pan off and follow Gandalf and the council to fight Sauron in Dol Guldur, then the second would follow on will the rest of the hobbit. Anyway all in all I'm excited but I was just really eager to know how this Bilbo thing will go down!
